“The work completed by Don Wenk in the course of preparing the business valuation was exceptional. Mr. Wenk was timely, responsive, and able to explain his conclusions in a way that litigators and jurors could understand.

I would highly recommend Mr. Wenk to others and would most certainly use him again.” – Partner, Denver law firm
